You misunderstood......here's the deal.
I paid $199 for my GTX9800+ at Newegg.com
I did EVGA's step up to the GTX260 216core:
GTX260 216core cost $299 from EVGA, less the $199 credit they gave me from my original purchase from Newegg. So I paid EVGA $100 for the upgrade.
Sooo....my total cost for the GTX260 216core is $299 ($199 to newegg, $100 to EVGA).
I like I said before, I could have saved $30 or so buying elsewhere, but I wouldn't have been able to sell my GTX9800+ for $199, as they are now going for $149 in some places!!
The step up program was the way to go for an upgrade IMHO.
